Sketches of the simulated fracture network (blue lines on the left graphs), and the evolution of a fluid pressure and b fracture aperture for the model “60–88”. Dashed lines indicate the location of fracture segment intersections. Coloured points indicate the location of the earthquake hypocentres and magnitudes (cyan: M < 0, green 0 ≤ M<1, yellow: 1 ≤ M<1.5, red: 1.5 ≤ M<2 and pink: M ≥ 2). The red dashed area indicates the data shown in Figs. 8 and 9
